“Bipartisanship” and “Cooperation”

Bush says that he will reach out and hopes that Democratic leaders will join him. It’s clear to me that after four years of ramming legislation through the throat of Congress with little-to-no consultation with the party that won the popular vote in 2000, and a standard modus operandi of actually excluding the Democratic party, it’s up to the Bushies to prove that they are doing more than talking.

Democratic leaders should definitely NOT cooperate with the hard-right agenda of the Bush administration, and should, yes, OBSTRUCT, and filibuster all attempts to push anything through. It will require discipline and some balls. Which unfortunately, seem pretty rare in the Dems these days.

We, the people, need to turn up the heat on our leadership to NOT cooperate unless the means is fair and inclusive. Do NOT bend over. See where it got Daschle?

Fences are for property lines, not for sitting.
